Citrus Rum Punch: a bright combination of four citrus juices mixed with two kinds of rums. Grab some friends and have a party!
I just returned from a fun week in Seattle visiting my best friend! I had donuts almost every day. (That alone is an indicator of a great vacation!) I ate delicious pastas from Travolata, giant slices of pizza from Rocco’s, and stuffed myself with all the pastries and baked goods from Fresh Flours, Amandine Bakeshop, Le Panier, and Macrina just to name a few. Asides from all the eating, we saw thousands upon thousands of tulips at the nearby Tulip Festival in Skagit Valley.
While it was sunny and warm in Los Angeles, it was a bit chilly in Seattle. When it gets cold, I’m all about staying indoors plopped on the couch dressed in comfy sweats with a warm beverage in hand. That being said, I had no energy or motivation to explore the wine, bar, and cocktail scene of Seattle. (Except for this super cool speakeasy bar Bathtub Gin & Co.– which I totally loved and cannot wait to try their other drinks.) I hope to return in the summer when it’s warmer. That’s when I’ll bar hop all over the city (and try more donuts)!
Now that I’m back in Los Angeles and back to temperatures in the mid-80’s, I’m ready for a cocktail. With spring in full bloom, it’s time to dust off the patio furniture and bring the party outdoors.
